Year '''404''' ('''Roman numerals|CDIV
''') was a leap year starting on Friday
(link will display the full calendar) of the Julian calendar
. At the time, it was known as the '''Year of the Consulship of Honorius and Aristaenetus''' (or, less frequently, '''year 1157 ''Ab urbe condita
'''''). The denomination 404 for this year has been used since the early medieval period, when the Anno Domini calendar era
became the prevalent method in Europe for naming years.
